Being a Creative Writing Student
Staying active in the creative writing community is easy for students. The college literary magazine, The Great Lake Review, welcomes dozens of editors in all genres-and publishes dozens of students across genres. There are two active creative writing clubs, Writers Open Forum and The Creative Writing Club.
The creative writing faculty offices open onto a common public space where students are encouraged to congregate and swap stories, poems, essays, screenplays and plays. In this space are literary journals available for student use, free copies of The Writer's Chronicle, and notices for national and international undergraduate writing contests in various genres.
Nearby are small classrooms used for creative writing classes, state-of-the-art facilities that include multiple audio-visual and internet linkages. In those classrooms student voices are valued, whether on the page or spoken aloud.
